My vaginal discharge smells like fish. I'm assuming this couldn't possibly bedue to a messy fish and chips dinner. No, way more intimate than someone constantlyspilling dinner in my lap. Then the most likely cause is due to an infection. I don't think I have a social disease. Well,I hope I don't have a sexual disease. If you have bacterial vaginosis caused bythe overgrowth of bacteria naturally down there, you can end up with a fishy odor. How could I have developed thaté
So much douching to remove any odor that youstripped away healthy bacteria, leaving the bad ones a fertile playground. If you said that about my digestive tract,the solution would be probiotics. If you have that type of discharge, you cantreat it by eating yogurt and hoping that circulates through your system to the vagina.Or you can take the direct route and put yogurt up there. That's as embarrassing to admit as a coloncleanse. You know that it is bacterial overgrowth ifit is worse after you have sex or if you're
suffering a UTI too. I don't see how a UTI could cause this. If you're wiping back to front, the poopbacteria that get into the urinary tract and cause a UTI will cause vaginosis too. What's a reason that doesn't have to dowith a playground being between two sewersé A fishy odor accompanied by a green dischargemeans you have trichomoniasis. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. *That I've heard of, but I don't knowanything about it.
Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, andit causes a sour or fishy smell. Then trich is a sexual disease. Yes, and they can cure it with antibiotics. What else could it beé If it smells like rotted meat down there,you may have forgotten a tampon. That's what can cause toxic shock syndrome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you havethe vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock syndrome.
Anything on that list necessitates gettingto a , and after which, only using ultrathick maxi pads. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and lookslike curds, you have a yeast infection. It is also more likely if the itching is bad,skin is red and it hurts when you pee or have sex. At least that I can treat with stuff fromthe store. And any other cause requires talking to a, yogurt or not.
What are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms
Hey guys, Axe here. I want to talk aboutthe many benefits of vitamin D as well as vitamin D deficiency. So many people are strugglingwith vitamin D deficiency. In fact, according to a lot of medical studies today, they'reshowing that quite possibly the top deficiency we have in America is a vitamin D deficiency,and for a lot of us there are several reasons for that. But let me talk about the symptomsof vitamin D deficiency. I'm then going to get into what's causing vitamin D deficiency,then go over the best foods, supplements and things you can do to correct this type ofissue. But first and foremost, the big thing thatcan cause or the big symptoms you might have
with a vitamin D deficiency are immune issues.If you have a weakened immune system, that could be correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have candida or bacterial overgrowth, it can be caused from a vitamin D deficiency.If you struggle with let's say emotional ups and downs, like depression and anxiety, thatcan be a cause. Hormone imbalance, major cause of vitamin D deficiency. If you have troubleputting on muscle or losing weight, those are all correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have weak bones or teeth, osteoporosis or osteopenia, those are warning signs youhave a vitamin D deficiency. So again, you can see there are a lot of things and I didn't even get into certain other
things like cancer and diabetes and heartdisease but those are all warning signs you could have a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is responsible for really supportinga healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and here's a key thing toremember. Vitamin D is not just a vitamin. It's also a pro hormone. So it's responsiblefor so many hormone producing reactions within your body. You've got to have vitamin D. Now here are the biggest causes of vitaminD deficiency. Number one is not getting enough sunlight. The sun should be your number onesource of vitamin D. We live in a world today
where we live inside, especially if you'rein the northern states, whether it be in Canada or northern US or northern Europe. But ifyou are not getting outside enough and not getting enough direct sunlight on your skin,that will create a vitamin D deficiency. So starting off, the majority of people are vitaminD deficient because we don't get outside enough. And the other thing can be certain chemicals,especially things that are plastic in nature, those can block vitamin D absorption. So ifyou're drinking out of plastic bottles that have something called BPA, that's bisphenolA, that can cause vitamin D deficiency and really affect the way vitamin D is absorbedand utilized and created by your liver in
your body. The other thing is toxicity. If you're exposedto toxins on a regular basis, that affects the liver. Your liver is actually responsiblefor producing and creating vitamin D within your body. So again, toxicity another majorcause of vitamin D deficiency. So if you want to start to correct vitaminD deficiency and see improvements in your immune function, in your metabolism, in yourhormones and things like your thyroid and your adrenal glands and improving your overallmood and bone strength, you've got to get more vitamin D.
Again, your number one source by far is sunlight.I recommend getting outside 20 minutes to 30 minutes every single day. Even if it'scold outside, getting a little bit of sun on your face and hands, it's so importantfor getting Vitamin D. So again, number one is get sunlight 20 to 30 minutes a day. Now, apart from that, certain foods will containsmall amounts of vitamin D. Number one source will be wild caught salmon or fish, so againgetting wild caught fish on a regular basis. Also, raw fermented milk, like a goat's milkyogurt, may have small amounts of vitamin D, as will mushrooms and eggs. But again,you're going to get very small amount in diet.
Vagina Warning Signs that Your Vagina is Unhealthy
Warning Signs that Your Vagina is Unhealthy1. Itching Burning A constant itching and burning sensation indicatesthe onset of a number of vaginal infections. When the harmful bacteria outnumber the goodbacteria in the vagina, the imbalance manifests itself through the physical symptom of itchingand burning. A certain amount of yeast is essential toward off harmful bacteria in the vaginal area. However, an overproduction of yeast can resultin a yeast infection, causing symptoms that include itching and burning.
An inflammatory sensation and itching withoutany foul odor emanating from the vagina are signs of a yeast infection, according to a2004 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. Itching can also be a reaction to chemicalsor ingredients in soaps, creams, contraceptive foams and prepackaged douching mixtures. These mixtures can alter the bacterial balanceand acidity of the vagina that protect it against infections. 2.
Smelly Discharge Itï¿½s unlikely for your vagina to smell likea bed of roses, but if you notice a recurrent strong odor, one that even transfers to yourundergarments, it might be a sign of an infection. An excess of harmful bacteria causes bacterialvaginosis. A foulsmelling vaginal discharge is oftenthe first and most common symptom of this infection. A ï¿½fishy odorï¿½ is one of the major symptomsof bacterial vaginosis, according to a 2011 study published in the International Journalof Womenï¿½s Health.
This discharge may especially occur afterintercourse. Pregnant women who contract bacterial vaginosisrun a risk of delivering their baby prematurely, according to the Centers for Disease Controland Prevention. It also increases the risk of contractingsexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV, and may sometimes lead to pelvic inflammatorydisease. Therefore, seek medical attention right awayif you notice a vaginal odor. 3. Discoloration Excessive Discharge
Vaginal discharge is the bodyï¿½s naturalmechanism to keep the vagina lubricated and flush out harmful bacteria. Normal vaginal discharge ï¿½ clear or whiteand does not give off a bad odor. A brown or red discharge that occurs rightafter a menstrual cycle is usually not a matter of concern. However, if you experience brown or red dischargeon normal days between periods, seek medical attention as it could be indicative of cervicalcancer. If it occurs during early pregnancy, it couldsignify a miscarriage.
A green or yellow, smelly and frothlike dischargeis not normal and may be a sign of trichomoniasis, an STD. A watery white, gray or yellow discharge mightbe a symptom of bacterial vaginosis. While the amount of discharge differs fromwoman to woman, recurrent and excessive discharge may also indicate bacterial vaginosis. Seek medical attention right away if you noticea discoloration in your vaginal discharge. 4. Abnormal Bleeding
